The highest calling for a human is to live a virtuous life.

The highest calling for a human is to live a virtuous life. One can reach this way of life through mindset practices, psychology, philosophy, and/or religion. There is no single right way to reach a virtuous life. All that matters is that one is able to reach it. To be virtuous or morally excellent, one is compassionate, empathic, patient, and loving, among many other great qualities. Virtuous people handle adversity in a calm and collected way because of their heightened awareness of their every thought and every action. We can attain this by holding ourselves accountable, not because of fear of any repercussion, but because it is the right way to live. By working on ourselves daily, we can maintain...

Do they make others around them feel like everything will be okay?Which type of experience do you enjoy more? Now take a look at how you react to good things...

Remember when we were young, dreaming of all the things we would do.

Remember when we were young, dreaming of all the things we would do. We talked outside of my parents' house really late until the hidden sun's faint glow turned the skies dark blue. Now, years later, we can look back and smile for doing all the things we wanted to do. Ahead of us, bigger dreams, bigger goals. Let's keep pushing forward, through our ebbs and flow. For as long as we exist, we'll continue to grow. - poem, +positive masters, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 2/14/2020 - While talking with my good friend Brandon Mitsuda, I took a picture of this night rainbow, created by the misty white glow from the big moon in Waikele, Hawaii on Monday February 10, 2020....
